    Out Of State LLC Exempt?
    Hi, I'm new here. I'm thinking about starting an LLC and I live in California. I'm wondering, to avoid any future nexus issues, I'm thinking about starting an LLC in a state where nexus will never be an issue, say like Delaware, then have all checks sent to a PO Box in Delaware, then forwarded to me in California. I will be the sole member of this LLC (no partners, etc). Are there other affiliates doing similar things? How does it work out? Before I go seeking legal advise, thought I'd try here first.

    Doesn't work and it could be considered fraud.

    This has been discussed over and over again for a few years now, and there is no way to legally avoid the impact of the nexus tax if you live in California. However, I have found in dealing with this for years now that a significant number of merchants who do not generally accept nexus state affiliates will accept the State Board of Equalization workaround certification.

    This is not to say, however, that the nexus tax did not affect me substantially, just that I've learned to accept it and move on.
